Welch Woods, Arundel

This small Arundel Conservation Trust preserve offers a delightful half-mile walk through the woods to a quiet spot on the Kennebunk River. You can sit on one of the benches and watch the water flow by, along with the occasional kayaker and bird. The path is well marked, as are the private property boundaries.

Directions: There is a small parking area off River Road about 0.5 mile beyond Durrell’s Bridge toward Kennebunkport.


Let me know if you have any trail updates or corrections!
